Thursday evening SCU officers made a traffic stop at a convenience store on Broadway Street in Sulphur Springs. Inside the vehicle were Isaiah Deonte Bryant-Lacy, 19, the driver, and Eduardo Austin Torres, 17, the passenger. Upon contact, Sgt. Estes and Sergeant Crouse could smell a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. Sgt.

Estes a large white container which had an undisclosed quantity of marijuana and a clear bag containing several green pills identified as Xanax. The two men were within 1000 feet of a Christian School located on Lee Street which enhanced the charge to being within a Drug Free Zone.
